How can they tell a "credible" threat versus a bogus one?

Short answer, they can't. All threats have to be taken seriously.

What's really going on Coach McIrish?

Teachers/faculty having their XMas party today.

And we move on.........


I don't know... NYC got the same threat, and they were able to figure out pretty quickly it was BS.

Didn't they use a Beastie Boys song to introduce young Kirk in the 1st one? I assume that's what they're going for.

They did. When 10 year old Kirk steals the corvette, Sabotage is playing on the radio.

I was hoping with Abrams busy Michael Bay-ing around on Star Wars, Trek would get handed off to adults. Nope. The new trailer makes the last one look like the extended cut of Tarkovsky's Solyaris.

Agree with the goodness ... and would disagree with the "reboot" .. it's prequel

Reboot is "Point Break" .. that .. bad idea

the "go tell the story of how it started" concept in movies is ideal .. Trek, Xmen, Star Wars, etc .. all did it very well.

Next up : Harry Potter "Fantastic Beasts and where to find them" hits theaters Nov. 18, 2016.

As a lifelong Trekker, I have no problems with JJTrek.

The Transwarp beaming and Khan's blood stuff is nitpicky. They are good stories and good movies.

The only "aw dang" I have with BEYOND right now is the destruction of the Enterprise.

The only good thing about Star Trek was William Shatner banging alien broads.

Star Wars was pretty cool.

You are entitled to your opinion. And if they weren't Treks, I might have enjoyed them too (the first one, anyway - the second one was an awful film with more plot holes than plot).

It's just not Trek is the thing. If you took the Mission Impossible movies, changed a few minor things, and then called them "James Bond," I wouldn't like those either. And I do like the M:I movies. But it's not Bond. Nor is the Abrams thing Trek. Trek isn't supposed to be nonstop action sequences and Beastie Boys songs and everybody quipping like Lethal Weapon. They took something unique, recycled some names and background info, and turned it into everything else.

Exerpt from a Simon Pegg Interview about the story and explosions and ****.
What you have to maintain with Star Trek is that it’s rooted somewhere in our universe. In humanity, [compared to Star Wars, which] is a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

The thing that makes that Star Wars more science fantasy is there’s a lot of special effects, a lot of fighting. Star Trek never could afford that, in a way. Which is why it had to concentrate on other aspects of production. We can do both now now. So I think it’s kind of finding a way of having that really fun, spectacular event cinema, but grounding it.

Because explosions don’t mean a damn thing if you don’t care about who’s involved in the explosions. You can see that most incredible fireworks on a cinema screen. But if you don’t fundamentally care about the people that are in jeopardy then they’re so unimpressive. You see that time and time again these days."

"I felt like now it was time to move away from the [Kirk-Spock] bromance thing and concentrate on the idea of the crew as a family living in a small space together, and what it means to all of them. I really love the dynamic between Bones and Spock, so that’s something we’ve kind of concentrated on a little bit with this one.

Kirk’s older than his dad was when he died. All that sort of psychological stuff is playing on him. Scotty’s just still Scotty."


The crew is 2 years into the 5 year mission...

"[The crew knows] that they’ve still got time to go. It’s more that they’re dealing with what would inevitably be the psychological impact of doing it. It’s not they’re, “Oh, I don’t want to do this anymore.” No one’s over it. It’s just that they’re doing their job. They’re going from adventure to adventure and it’s kind of tiring, and wondering what the end game of it all is.

The idea of the movie, the story in the film, is that what they encounter helps to clarify what their job is."

One more quote from Pegg. a little off topic, but my feelings exactly...

"There seems to be this weird thing these days about if you gritty
something up suddenly it’s okay for us to like it as grownups. Like
justifying what is essentially aimed at children, but if you suddenly
fill it with darkness and blood, it’s okay for grownups. You don’t have
to feel guilty about liking it. But **** that. We can like anything you
like."


You know who I hold responsible for that? Batman fans.

Fanboys of the caped crusader absolutely love the grittiness of that universe. Since Dark Knight and DKR were so successful, Hollywood is all about it. So much so I had genuine fears that they were going to turn Superman into a brooding anti-hero in MOS. And for the record, they almost did.

It's permeating all sorts of stuff. If the TMNT weren't goofy teens, they'd probably all be grouchy smartasses like Raphael in that most recent remake. (fell asleep during that one)

I argue that the biggest reason the Avengers was so darn good is that they seemed to sidestep this trend. And the 2009 Star Trek absolutely sidestepped it before Into Darkness.

I think the "dark" comics/fantasy film love is wearing off. The fact that a movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man performed so well shows that audiences like "light & funny" as much as they like dark. Hopefully Hollywood gets that.

The Dark Tower looks like it's finally happening. The rumored cast is a bit... disappointing but I'll see it opening fricking day just the same.

That excited me as I loved the series. That said, I hope they don't try to cram 7 books into 1 movie.

Don't worry. It'll be an 8 movie series, 1 for each book and a 2 part finale.

They're gonna drag this out as long as they can

I am not a Burton fan, but the Alice movie was pretty cool .. I watched the preview last night and literally had my mouth open the whole time .. Maybe I need help

Lewis Carroll has a way to make you disappear .. and the first movie did just that .. I have faith this second one will be fine [but most likely not as good]

I recently saw Big Fish. That was probably the first Burton movie I enjoyed since Batman.

No love for Tim Burton and his weirdness. Beetlejuice was probably the only movie he did that was perfect for him.

Beetle juice
Batman
Scissorhands
Nightmare before Christmas
Corpse bride
Mars attacks
Sweeney Todd
Charlie and chocolate factory
Big fish


Haven't seen Alice



Part of it is I had crushes on two of the chicks he used a lot - Ryder and Bonham Carter :oops:

The dark side of Wonka was PERFECT for Burton / Depp. I was beyond excited for it, hoping they'd explore it more. Instead I get a CGI orange oomp loompa **** fest.
